Tesla on 9-11.
On 9-11 it was Tesla Effect that contributed to the desruction of the Twin Towers and especially the basement workshops and the blocking of stairs.

Nikola Tesla was Croatian !! Not serbian :) His mother was serbian.
Please use Google Maps and see where is his bornplace: Smiljan !

Anyhow, this is a great move and we're all proud of it !

09/23/2013 4:31am

Nikola Tesla was a Serb, his father was an Orthodox priest. Tesla is not Croatian !!!

09/23/2013 4:53am

Good luck today. Well deserved Genious! Btw Tesla was Serb, born un Austria-Hungary(Present day Croatia).

09/23/2013 5:00am

Nikola Tesla was Serbian his father was Orthodox priest. Croatians destroyed his house in Smiljan during Civil war He was Serbian by birth and American by citizenship. Ulitimitlely he was citizens of the world. Croatians have no right to claim Tesla.

09/23/2013 10:07am

His father, Milutin Tesla, was a Serbian Orthodox priest, his mother's, father was also a Serbian Orthodox priest, and how he was Croatian I realy don't know

“There is something in me that could be a delusion, as often is the case with young and enthusiastic people. But if I am lucky to realize only some of my ideas, it will be a good deed for the entire humanity. If those hopes of mine are fulfilled, my sweetest thought will be that it is the work of a Serb…”

Please stop trolling!

Like it or not, Nikola Tesla was of Serbian origin. His father, Milutin Tesla, was a Serbian Orthodox priest, etc.

Nikola Tesla was born in the village of Smiljan, Austrian Empire. Geographically, it's in Croatia now and that's all about that.

09/23/2013 5:37am

Actually he was born in Croatia which was then part of Habsburg Monarchy. You can see a copy of his passport which says it was issued by 'The Kingdom of Croatia, Slavonia and Dalmatia' (official name of Croatia in Austria-Hungary) "in the name of his majesty Franz Josep I.".


He went to Serbia maybe once....if he ever went there at all...

But who cares anyway, this monument and especially it's unveiling are nothing more but a political spin-off. He considered himself "a citizen of the world" first and foremost. He is probably turning in his grave because of that crap written on the monument.

09/23/2013 7:23am

Just because you are born on a place somewhere doesn't make you into that roots. I'm born in Japan but I'm not asian at all, I have english spirit inside me and Tesla have Ortodox far from croatian ancestry. Why does his testament clearly state that he want's his belongings to be sent back to Serbia after his death....

Please note the the address information on the "MeetUP" site is wrong when used it directs you to Staten Island. I hope that people will know to go to Shoreham.

Tesla is Serb!

09/23/2013 8:55am

When Tesla was born a Serbian to a Serbian Orthodox priest and his wife the daughter of a Serbian Army officer. croatia did not even exist as a nation. The region was known as the military frontier, or Vojna Krajina, and was part of the austro-hungarian empire. The region was inhabited by Orthodox Serbian's who defended Christianity form the ottoman turks. The croats were simply stable boys and servants to the nobility.

LOL! That's why the government of the Kingdom of Croatia issued his passport....just because of the fact "Croatia didn't exist".

09/23/2013 11:05am

What government and which kingdom issued Tesla his passport in 1884? Sorry, even then croatia was simply a region on a map. It was not a nation and least not a kingdom. Historical revisionism is a crime.

Citizen of the World!
09/23/2013 12:33pm

The government of the Kingdom of Croatia, Slavonia and Dalmatia issued his passport.


You should do well do read a book or two and educate yourself before writing revisionist BS on the net and embarrassing yourself in public.

09/23/2013 4:00pm

There is a major difference between you and I; it deals with truth and reality and the perception and comprehension of each! The truth is written by some and reality is lived by most. Therefore truth can be manipulated. Reality cannot! Unfortunately your truth is tainted and you have yet to witness, comprehend or even live in reality. Your so-called document is farcical and one that can easily be manipulated for the propagation of 'truth', much like your mind. To make it simple simpleton; the truth is that Tesla was born in a region which encompasses modern day croatia. The reality is that Nikola Tesla was a SERBIAN!!!

Citizen of the World!
09/24/2013 3:44am

You can use your 'ad hominem' informal fallacious BS towards me as much as you want....couldn't care less. The fact (and the TRUTH) remains - he was born in Croatia. His passport proves it. I am sorry that bothers you.

PONOS, onaj osecaj kad se sve pojavilo na ekranu, kada sam vas sve videla...

PONOS, to je ono sto nemoze niko da nam uzme...

PONOS, za Teslu, za Srbiju, za sve nas koji smo SRBI, za sve nas koji smo rodjeni ovde u SAD, I volimo nasu zemlju I nas narod.

PONOSNA sam, kao I svi ostali.

Veliko hvala!

So that means Obama is not really an American since he is a son of a Kenyan immigrant? Interesting...

09/23/2013 4:06pm

Hey eunuch, let me put this into perspective for you. If a child of an American diplomat is born in China, does that make the child ethnically/racially/culturally Chinese? NO! Your complexes and mental instability are incurable. There is no hope for you.

Citizen of the World!
09/24/2013 3:35am

So you ARE saying Obama is not an American. Hilarious. Someone should get the word to Trump....lol....

No wonder you have to resort to fallacious "argumentation" such as 'ad hominem'. Sad.

09/26/2013 2:17am

Since you are questioning I guess you didn't learn this in school but I can teach you. That's right! He is not ethnically Amarican! In fact there was a lot of immigration from all over the world and slaves from Africa. It's a horrible history about the slaves but the people that Would be rooted there are the "native americans" (Indians for example).
I really like your name "Citizen of the world", because in the end we are all humans on one planet, our Planet. We should be in Peace with each other and work for a better world.

To be able to do that you need to teach the truth about things and in this case Nikola Tesla was Serbian

My little daughter was looking at the picture at the top and asked when did Djokovic grew a mustache. Nikola was a pretty good looking dude.

Does it really matter what republic/country/region Nicola came from. He's a genius. The world and residents of suffolk county should and are elated this property is here for ALL of us come down and volunteer

09/24/2013 12:51pm

Does anyone have a link to photos of the inscriptions on the monument or know where the text of it can be found?

09/26/2013 6:20am

Serbs are bastards of Europe ! They have territorial pretensions to all people in the area and falsify the history.

They even claim that Rudjer Boskovic is theirs.
